Summer Eyes to Suit All Budgets

Now we all love the Summer! I love how with summer make up the eyes are the main focus once those sunnies are off. So I am going to look at my favourite eye products to suit all budgets from bargains to blow outs. 

First off let's look at falsies. Now false lashes are one of the best ways to take your lashes from barely there to "WOW"! Now I've got 2 sets of lashes here, both are fantastic, let's have a closer look..

These first one's are Primark's £1 "Natural Look Lashes". Now I know people rave about these and not just over the price. These bargain strip lashes are really easy to wear with a super-light band. The adhesive is also good, it's got staying power. These lashes aren't anything fancy but if you've got short lashes and you just want a bit of a more natural looking lash without breaking the bank then these are the ones for you. 

Now if you're one who likes to splash out a little then these next ones are for you. Eylure Katy Perry Lovely Lolita Lashes (£5.95) these are just like all Eylure lashes: lovely, lightweight and they apply like a dream. These are Katy Perry's latest set of lashes, they are lovely. These in particular are my fave, like the Primark ones they have a super-light band which means they feel like your natural lashes. The adhesive in Eylure lashes is always a winner for me!

Now if falsies aren't your thing then here are 2 mascara's that I've been championing these past few months. First of these being Soap & Glory's Thick & Fast Flash Extensions Mascara (£10) now this one is really great to add length and thickness to your lashes. Next is Smashbox Photo Op Eye Brightening Mascara (£18) all I can really say about this mascara is WOW! This has it all for me, it adds length, thickness, curl and definition. It's a bit more expensive but it's definitely worth the extra pennies. 

What good are amazing lashes without a set of brows to go with them. Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara (£4.99) is great for a natural thick eyebrow look, it doesn't make your eyebrows too bold but it does make them look fabulous, I think this product would be perfect for a festival look. Another great product is L'Oreal's Brow Artist Super Liner (£5.49) this is great for bold defining brows. One side to be used to pencilling in your shape and colour and the other a wax to keep your brow look in place. This is probably my fave out the 2 because I do love a good brow haha. 

Finally let's go on to colours! Now I've been loving eyeshadow pencils, they are really easy to use and just handy to have. I've got these COLLECTION Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencils (£3.19 each) they come in a good range of colours and I am personally loving this pearlescent pink and denim blue colour. I also have this little Urban Decay Duo in Sin/Mushroom which are great every occasion colours. You can get singles of these colours in Debenhams for £14. Pricey but UD eyeshadows are definitely worth it.  

I hope you've enjoyed my first post back after a break and I will be back later on this week with a return of Product of the Week. I would love to see your Summer Eye Looks on our Facebook Page

  1. I love a fake eyelash, I wear them every day!

  2. I love false lashes but it's about 50-50 whether I manage to apply them correctly or not. One usually ends up closer to my eyebrow than lash line. True story :/

  3. I cannot get to grips with false lashes, though I am quite impatient, they never seem to either sit right or stay on x

  4. I could never wear false eyelashes. Mascara even gave me challenges. When I wore it, I'd spend all night scratching. I guess I'm a natural type of 'gal'. However, I love the look of them on other people.

  5. Fab post Kate! Glad to see you back! Can't use false eyelashes, have tried before and managed them once or twice but with glasses on all the time they aren't practical x

  6. Oooooh I love that S&G mascara. One of the few mascaras that allows you to pile it on without looking clumpy!


  7. I love the thick and fast mascara, its what I wear daily and it really give a fuller thicker lash effect!
